EA Play Live 2021

A new EA Play Live event will air on July 22, EA has announced. Last year’s presentation was held in June, and today’s news confirms that the upcoming broadcast will take place after E3.

In 2020, EA did actually have a decent amount of Switch news. Apex Legends was announced for the platform, we heard about Lost in Random for the first time, and more.

We’ll let you know about any significant Nintendo-related news that emerges from EA Play Live 2021.

Build-A-Bear seems to be expanding its plans for Animal Crossing: New Horizons plushies pretty quickly. After Tom Nook and Isbelle initially went up last month, both can now be found in winter versions. You can see their designs above.

Also worth noting is that the original summer versions have been restocked as well.

All of the Animal Crossing: New Horizons Build-A-Bear plushies can be found here.

Another reward based on Animal Crossing: New Horizons is now available in North America. The site is now offering printable Animal Crossing: New Horizons gift tags, with the set including eight different designs.

The tags will set you back just 10 Platinum Points. It’s up for grabs on My Nintendo here.

A little while back, Dengeki Online spoke with Story of Seasons: Pioneers of Olive Town director Hikaru Nakano and producer Dai Takemura. The possibility of additional remakes was discussed during the discussion.

Switch already has a remake of Harvest Moon: Friends of Mineral Town, which was released as Story of Seasons: Friends of Mineral Town in 2020. Nakano personally expressed interest in bringing back the likes of Harvest Moon 64, Harvest Moon: A Wonderful Life, and Harvest Moon DS.

This week’s episode of Nintendo Minute has gone live. In today’s video, Kit and Krysta do their own unboxing and color comparison for the blue Switch Lite. Check out the full episode below.

Before Monolith Soft created Xenoblade, the developer worked on a number of other titles. Baten Kaitos was one brief RPG series the studio was known for. The original game as well as its prequel – Baten Kaitos Origins – were GameCube exclusives. This was back when Monolith Soft was with Bandai Namco.

The Baten Kaitos IP has been dormant since Origins released in 2006. There were some talks about a DS entry that never came to be, but that’s pretty much it.

It’s interesting then that new trademarks have surfaced in Europe. Baten Kaitos and Baten Kaitos Origins were both filed today. That doesn’t exactly mean that they’ll be rereleased or that Bandai Namco has any plans for the series, but we would certainly welcome HD remasters on Switch if that were to ever happen.

Super Nintendo World recently opened at Universal Studios Japan (though it was temporarily closed due an increase in coronavirus cases) and a new Pikmin app is in the works.
